At the Oxford Bus Museum we're dedicated to telling the story
of bus and coach travel around Oxfordshire over the last 130
years. Our exhibits include many historic preserved buses,
coaches, horse-drawn vehicles, a wide selection of artefacts (bus
stops, ticket machines, timetables, posters, staff uniforms) and
lots of fantastic photos illustrating our diverse public transport
history.

Since 2004 we've also been home to the Morris Motors
Museum, which charts the story of how these classic British
cars and commercial vehicles were produced at Cowley, in the
city. Our impressive collection of vintage Morris vehicles
represents those produced during William Morris's life.

PWL 413 centenary bus

The link between William Morris founder of Morris Motors (who
later became Lord Nuffield) and buses in Oxford can be traced to
1913 when he and a partner started the first motorbus service in
the city. 2013 was a significant year for us. A double centenary
celebration - 100 years of motorbuses in the city of Oxford and
100 years of car manufacture in Cowley.

We now have a unique collection of over 40 vintage bicycles,
including a Penny Farthing (as pictured below).
It just wouldn't be Oxford without bikes!

FREE vintage bus rides from the museum are on Sundays:

5 & 19 October 2014.
5 October is our rally day, when we will be running a range of free vintage bus rides.
On 19 October a bus will depart at 12.15pm & 2.45pm for a 20 minute tour. Weather and buses permitting!
